>If you have kids then this article is for you. What kind of parent are you? There’s actually one that works the best. Read on and see what kind of parenting style you have!


Parents’ lives change when a child is born.

As children grow older, the decisions don’t stop; they change — school, meals, allowances, after-school activities, friendships, holidays. Although solutions to these individual daily dilemmas are important, it’s the parents’overall style and attitude that count as they influence, teach and socialize their children.
